chatty chat chat!
The soundtrack is the new Radiohead record, A Moon Shaped Pool, which I cannot link, but you can (and should) acquire. It is blissful and flawless

Shouldn't the Nationals assume (or strongly suspect) that if Boras is willing to do an extension for Strasburg, there must be something wrong with his elbow that they don't know about?
august fagerstrom

I think this is something worth considering, but at the same time, Strasburg's looked as good as ever lately, so it would be odd if *now* was the time when Boras felt the need to make that move
12:07
I'd guess Strasburg just wanted to stay in Washington, and that overruled Boras

So, JT Realmuto passing Ozuna and being called out and being credited with a single, out at 2nd - when was the last time that happened in the majors prior to this?

12:07
I'm not sure. I'd like to know, but I couldn't figure out a way to Play Index it last night

What's the prognosis on Carrasco? Does he come back as good as ever? Will there be some rust? Is he the key to the Indians climbing back into it?

Well you'd certainly rather have a leg injury than an arm injury for a pitcher, though of course neither is ideal. Really just depends how quickly he can regain his mechanics with one hamstring being weaker than the other

Remember when "Anonymous Scout" was calling for Matz to get demoted after ONE bad start? Anonymous Internet Commenter thinks Anonymous Scout should be the one who suffers a demotion instead

Now that we're past April and sample sizes have become just a little bit meatier, why is Fielder still starting every day batting 3rd or 4th in the order? Is the rest of his contract dead money?
august fagerstrom
12:12
money/past performance
"He's Prince Fielder," is why

Would a 52 year old Big Unit be able to put up a replacement level season out of the bullpen?
august fagerstrom
12:13
like literally right now? No
He's been taking pictures since he retired, not pitching
